Jammu, July 29
Two retired bureaucrats on Thursday joined the Jamp;K Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) here, a party spokesperson said.
AC Bhagat, former deputy director animal husbandry, and MR Sangra, former deputy director information, both prominent social activists, joined the Congress in presence of JKPCC chief GA Mir and other senior party leaders.
Welcoming them, Mir expressed hope that they would work to strengthen the party. Attacking the BJP-led government at the Centre, the JKPCC chief alleged that the Centre had failed to “fulfil even a single commitment” made to the people of Jamp;K and “instead brought miseries for the common man due to its wrong policies”.
“The achievement of this government is that the divisive forces have succeeded in vitiating the atmosphere of peace and harmony in the country,” he said. “There is a hue and cry everywhere and nobody feels secure under the present regime,” he added. — PTI
